    This one is funny! It's actually "Fånt ja e körv så huppä ja i älva". It's Swedish dialect for "If I can't have a sausage, I'll jump into the river". In non-dialect Swedish it would be "Får jag inte en korv så hoppar jag i älven". It's a song - Köppäbävisan. Weird, I know! Back in 1981 a Swedish music teacher, Bengt Pegefelt, decided to write a song for his pupils, with a nonsense text in the very special local dialect. The song was silly and special enough to be a crazy success all over Sweden at the time. It's become kind of a cult classic.

    It goes like this:

    It was afternoon in Köppäbä [dialect for Kopparberg]

    and I was here and there

    I was up and down and in and out

    in Köppäbä

    [Refrain:]

    If I can't have a sausage, I'll jump into the river,

    If I can't have a sausage, I'll jump into the river,

    If I can't have a sausage, I'll jump into the river,

    in Köppäbä.

    ...oh, well, enough already! It doesn't get better than that. But here is the full text in Swedish.

    Köppäbävisan

    1. Hä vä ättemidda uti Köppäbä,

    å ja va hännä å dännä.

    Ja va öppa å nera å inna

    å uta i Köppäbä.

    R. Fån´t ja e körv så huppä ja i älva,

    fån´t ja e körv så huppä ja i älva,

    fån´t ja e körv så huppä ja i älva

    i Köppäbä.

    2. Farsan å morsan ha kåk uti i Forsa,

    dit skä ja åka å strula å jåssa,

    sen ta ja buss´n å dönä raka vägen

    te Köppäbä

    R. Fån´t ja e...

    3. Jobbä i värkä å plätä i dosa

    sen utte Valsan styr ja mi kosa,

    där ha ja stuga å

    möljä hela sömmän lång.

    R. Fån´t ja e...

    4. Nä ja ä ledi så gå ja på Vallen

    å häjä på Brage,

    får ont uti skallen,

    å va de bero´ på hä vill ja intä tala om

    R. Fån´t ja e...
